Festiniog Railway 2t Slate Wagon - Set of 3
The 2-ton capacity iron slate wagon depicted by this model is one of the most numerous types, with hundreds built and many surviving. As these wagons tend to run in long rakes, the models have semi-permanent close-couplings fitted in their NEM pockets. These can be pulled out with fine nosed pliers and replaced with conventional 00-9 hoop-and-loop couplings (supplied) at each end of the rake.
Each wagon is fitted with a removable slate load, which is conveniently hollow, thus giving the modeller the added option of including some further weight if required.
